Start in front of the big boulder and head toward the big crack with a small roof. Climb right of the crack then above the roof head left up the slab. Below the next small roof I went right. Bushwhack a bit to get below the next bolt, I might need to add another bolt, since you are way past the last one and you have do a few moves off the deck to reach the clip. I went left to get the bolt, others went right. Once on top of the pinnacle, a few cool laybacks and sidepulls get you to the anchors.


It's below the small gully and in front of a large boulder.

The bushwhack sucks, but the route is worth doing. PG-13 isn't really warranted.

A good hold came loose while we were climbing Raining Chickens, making the route a bit tougher. This one is a fun one though!
